Taittinger Champagne House (Maison de Champagne Taittinger)

9 Place Saint Nicaise, Reims, France

The Basics

Located among the ruins of the Saint-Nicaise Abbey, Taittinger’s chalk caves have earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. At 712 acres (288 hectares),Taittinger is today one of the largest domaines in the Champagne region. It offers a range of world-class cuvées and vintage Champagnes; its Comtes de Champagne cuvée is among its most prestigious releases. A tasting of several different cuvées is included as part of the official tour.

Taittinger also features on numerous Champagne-region itineraries, from small-group and private Champagne-house tours to day-trip excursions from Paris; longer itineraries also tend to stop at other nearby producers, while leaving the driving to someone else.

Gwendal was great! We had such a wonderful time seeing Pommery and the other locations. Gwendal knew so much about the Champagne region and all of the best places for views/a little history. He even made accommodations for us so that we wouldn't miss our train back to Paris - the sights were beautiful and lunch was great as well!

The commentary by Raffael very interesting & spot on ! Not too much! Took us past a few extra sights that we could explore in depth the next day! The Champagne houses lived up to expectations….. loved both GH Mumm and Moët et ChNdon.

Gwendal was a wonderful host. Every step of the way before, during and at the end of the tour he was punctual, considerate, courteous and responsive to our questions and concerns. He would be our choice for our next tour and we wish all tour guides were as well educated and communicative both with information of importance and response to questions.

Champagne Moet et Chandon & Taittinger Small-Group Tour with Tasting from Reims
Our trip was extraordinary from start to finish! Our guide, Raphael, was the perfect combination of being a wealth of knowledge with a wonderful personality. The region was beautiful and the tours at Moët and Taittinger did not disappoint The guide at Moët did a fabulous job explaining the process that goes into making a bottle of champagne, and the tastings were delightful! Well worth the journey from Paris!! Thank you Raphael for a great day!

Champagne Moet et Chandon & Taittinger Small-Group Tour with Tasting from Reims
Guide was very good and the trip was interesting. Only downside was when we were picked up we were asked if we wanted to have lunch at a restaurant and we said yes. We paid 90 Euros each for this to our guide not to the restaurant. The meal and drinks were fine but we returned to the restaurant today and saw the price of the deal we had had was 60 euros? There were 4 people on the tour and we all overpaid 30 euros which doesn’t seem right considering the trip had cost £191 each. Maybe this should be looked into as in my opinion it’s wrong.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • As Taittinger’s chalk caves are around 50° Fahrenheit (10° Celsius) throughout the year, it’s advised to wear layers.

  • Whether you visit via a tour or book a tasting session directly with the winery, reservations are strongly recommended, particularly during the busy summer months.

  • The Maison de Champagne Taittinger is accessible to wheelchair users and travelers with strollers.

Must-Visit Champagne Houses in Reims

Taittinger isn’t the only worthy Reims Champagne house—in fact, the small city is home to several top producers. After your subterranean tour and tasting, visit some other nearby Champagne houses: top picks include Ruinart, established in 1768 and officially the longest-running Champagne producer; Veuve Clicquot, one of the largest and most popular houses; and Pommery, which pioneered the dry style of Champagne.
